Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,596

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 27, 2011

It's IG97, the "killer" robot.  Based on the newest Battle Droid chassis, the figure has loads of articulation, a good amount of gear, and a comic-accurate head to boot.  You'll want this one-- assuming you can still find it, which is entirely possible.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,594

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 25, 2011

He's small and fishy.  Robonino was one of those figures fans started asking for, subsequently got, and didn't really buy.  His Target-exclusive gift set is still available nearly 9 months after its introduction, which is a shame, as it's a nice set that should sell through. Should you get one?  Read on!

Comic-Con: Trench Run X-Wing Has Guts

By Mike — Friday, July 22, 2011

At first glance, one may make the assumption that the upcoming ToysRus Trench Run X-Wing Fighter is another iteration of the 1997 Power FX mold or a repaint like the Dagobah version. But Hasbro went to great lengths to give Luke's signature starfighter some fresh insides by tooling a new fuselage and adding great detail and features in the cockpit. This may be your definitive 3 3/4 X-Wing yet.

Comic-Con: Hasbro Gets Revenge!

By Mike — Thursday, July 21, 2011

While last year's focus was on The Empire Strikes Back's 30th Anniversary, this year is all about "Getting Revenge". Marvel properties may be the movie darlings of 2011, but Hasbro remains dedicated to their Vintage mission,though most of what they showed at Comic-Con was packaging alone, as they largely touted their show exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Death Star set.

First Look: Kmart Vintage Return of the Jedi The Vintage Collection B-Wing Fighter

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, July 16, 2011

Pretend to be excited! Hasbro will likely be unveiling the B-Wing Fighter, a just-released Kmart exclusive in The Vintage Collection at Comic-Con this week. I expect lots of applause from people in the audience who weren't paying attention to store shelves-- but not you, good reader, as you are an astute person with their ear to the tracks for this kind of thing, and good for you. I appreciate that. How is this fourth release of a 1980s mold? Pretty good, actually-- it's basically a redeco of the 2008 Dagger Squad version.

As far as toy vehicles go, the B-Wing (courtesy of its packaging and how it ships) provides one of the best user experiences around for Star Wars spacecraft. Kudos to Hasbro's packaging department for a well-engineered series of inserts, but more on that later.

And wouldn't you love to know what the 1984 ship cost and if the 2011 one is a bargain adjusted for inflation? Click through for images and impressions, after the break.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,582

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 7, 2011

Screw naming conventions!  The astromech droid CB-3D looks like several other astromech droids... but he's slightly different.  Is he worth tracking down?  He is if you want a Dark Trooper!  Read on!
